    They were acquired through various bugs, of which I have little knowledge.

    These horses were bannable for a long time.

    Then they fixed the bug.

    Then new bugs, and new horses, appeared. The horses remained bannable.

    Then, for a very brief window of time, the horses were legal to buy, sell, and own, but not technically legal to acquire.

    Then they fixed the bug and to my knowledge there've been no new ones since.

    Galen has one, but it's rarely seen. I got tired of waiting to find someone to rez it, and the "log out and your pet comes to you even if it's dead" trick NEVER has worked for it.

    It is the mount that the top tier of faction guard rides. You could dismount them with a lance, and tame the horse. They fixed it so you couldn't. Then SE came out with Riding Swipe, and once again you could do it. Now it is impossible to get them, but to the best of my knowledge they are perfectly legit to have and ride.

    I have a bunch of pure black ones on GL if you want to buy one. ;)
